Why

 

 

When will this nightmare end?

We live hidden,

we hear the gunshots.

Rats run between us.

There – at the top – people are afraid of their own shadows.

 

What and to whom can one say?

 

No one will nark when

you are silent,

you don’t go out

where the world

is waiting to take revenge on us.

 

We fall asleep

when the sound of hatred dies away.

 

Dada, when will we wake up?

 

Maybe they will not wake us up.

 

Why?

 

It will be for the better.

Sleep now, my dear.

 

 

 

 

 

As Once Did

 

 

From every alley

the Magnetic People attracted.

 

Then death

was born more often than life.

 

Our God, who is in us,

let us live to see tomorrow.

Do not take away the future.

 

Onto the bomb craters

poured down a rain of tears.

Some lasted

until the uncertain tomorrow.

 

The Magnetic attracted,

as once did

the Crucified.

 

 

 

 

 

Flashes

 

 

In a place

out of sight

wreathed flashes

of the past days, nights, years.

 

Failure has left

disobedient dreams.

 

Too late he understood

that time

melts.
